Iola employees get preferential treatment in regards to insurance



August 12, 2019 - 10:08 AM

At a time when liberal Democrats running for president are calling for universal health insurance — and are often demonized for doing so — it’s surprising how closely Iola city leaders hew to the mark with their generous health packages for city employees.

Currently, the city pays 100% of an employee’s insurance premium, or an average of $475 a month, and a flat rate of $775 for families, of which the employee contributes $250 a month.

Few in private industry can afford to be so generous.
